A month later, dozens of motorbikes passed through Brighton, Shoreham and Lancing before meeting at Worthing Crematorium for the funeral.
Dan’s father, Paul, expected around 150 bikers to escort Daniel in his motorcycle and sidecar hearse.
“It will be a collection of friends, family, colleagues and people who didn’t even know him,” Paul said.
“That’s the biker community.
“We are a family community in the cycling world and we come together to help each other.
“It should be quite a show.”
Dan, born in Lancing, who lived in Brighton, is remembered as a popular man, passionate about motorbikes. He had planned to marry his fiancée, Eden.
Close friends of Dan have since set up a fundraiser to help the family with the funeral costs. Over £7,800 has been raised so far. Click here if you would like to donate.
Two of Dan’s friends, John Kitchener and Tom Nash, held a successful fundraising event – and motorbike ride – at the North Star pub in Littlehampton Road, Worthing earlier this month.
Paul said: “The ride we took a few weeks ago was a dark occasion but it was a celebration.”
The North Star will host a party after the funeral for those who knew and loved Dan.
Speaking last month, Paul said: “The outpouring of support and love is mind-blowing. It’s helped tremendously.
“Under those circumstances people always say he lit up a room when we walked in but he [Dan] really done.
“He would go out of his way to do anything to help someone.
“You couldn’t help but love him. I’m so incredibly proud to call him my son.”
